PA1-742 detects Munc-18 from human, rat and mouse tissues.
PA1-742 has been successfully used in Western blot, immunohistochemistry, and immunoprecipitation procedures. By Western blot, this antibody detects an ~67 kDa protein representing Munc-18 from rat and mouse whole brain extract.
PA1-742 immunizing peptide corresponds to amino acid residues 58-70 from human Munc-18. This sequence is completely conserved between human, mouse, rat, bovine, and canine Munc-18. PA1-742 immunizing peptide (Cat. # PEP-067) is available for use in neutralization and control experiments.
Munc-18 is a cytosolic brain protein of ~67 kDa which plays a key role in vesicle membrane fusion events with the plasma membrane. Functional interactions have been demonstrated to exist between Munc-18, synaptosomal associated protein of 25 kDa (SNAP-25), synaptobrevin, and syntaxin. Munc-18 is the mammalian homologue of the C. elegans gene unc-18. Mutations in Munc-18 can result in accumulations of acetylcholine and paralytic phenotype suggestive of a neurotransmitter release defect. Munc-18 thus appears to be required by the synaptic vesicle fusion complex. Two Munc-18 isoforms have recently been identified. Munc-18-1 has been shown to be primarily expressed in brain, while Munc-18-2 is expressed in most tissues.
